We have recently announced that actor Shahid Kapoor gave his nod to portray the role of former boxing champion Ngangom Dingko Singh in his next film. The biopic on the  Asian Games gold medallist is being helmed by Raja Krishna Menon, who previously directed Akshay Kumar's Airlift and Saif Ali Khan's Chef. The film was supposed to begin in January this year but is now being pushed to the second half of 2019. 

Now the latest buzz says that Shahid Kapoor will make his debut as producer with Dingko Singh biopic. Reports suggest that Shahid is reportedly going to co-produce the film with his director Raja Krishna Menon.

A source close to Shahid said "Now, they have joined hands to produce the film. It will be shot primarily in Manipur, besides Delhi, while an international schedule is also being planned." 

The source also revealed that Shahid has been prepping for the role for over a year now. The actor is learning, studying every aspect, body language and nuances of the 1998 Asian Games Gold medalist boxer.

Meanwhile, Shahid is currently shooting for Kabir Singh, which is the remake of Vijay Deverakonda's Telugu hit Arjun Reddy. Kiara Advani is playing female lead opposite Shahid for the first time in Kabir Singh which is being helmed by Sandeep Vanga.
